So Let it be Written, So Let it be Done!

Six Years is a Long Time

So over the holiday weekend I was at home visiting family. As luck would have it, a couple of my friends from HS were in town and decided to get the gang back together. The first time the four of us have ever been in the same place at the same time since a couple months after high school. Anyway, at some point while waiting for the fourth to arrive, we decide (and this is probably alcohol fueled) to call a couple (female) friends of ours (or at least friends while we were in HS). Obviously, they’re still friends with at least one other person, because I don’t have their numbers.

The first did not answer what I was told was her cell phone. However, with my buddy insisting that it was, I sent a text message afterwards. In fact, now a lot of things are making sense. So, earlier this morning, I got an angry IM telling me not to “play” with her phone when drunk. Given that I know exactly what I did on the phone, I’m at a loss as to why it would constitute playing. However, I remember my phone giving me a message that it was unable to deliver an sms to voice message. Thinking it was for me, I enabled that feature. So, I’m guessing that indeed, it was not a cell number and that was what likely prompted the IM.

The other chick we called happened to be an ex girlfriend of mine. I suppose the conversation was tame, but now, a few days later, and given the IM from this morning, I’m starting to think about a couple things. It’s been my policy of late on facebook to remove people from my friends list who are not family or actually friends. There are a lot of people who were friends 6+ years ago, whom I’ve not really talked to in the time following graduation.

I added a lot of people, and likely so did they, in the initial join facebook frenzy of finding out who you know that is also on, however, now, I think it is now time to start purging my list of people whom I barely talk. Just a simple “remove everyone you haven’t talked to (by any means) in the last two years is probably enough to kill off half my list.

Perhaps I should just stop using facebook. Not sure why this came up, given that I now have less than 90 minutes to finish a hw project, but it seemed like it needed to be written.

  2. Thanks for the feedback. Once I get enough, I’m going to create a page for this blog that details all the situations under which it is unsafe for human consumption.

  4. Hmm, I’m a complex multi-faceted person. VSB topics tend to mostly be in one area and my blog tends to focus on others. I can see how that could be jarring. . .unification of two concepts can be tough when the knowledge bases encompass different universes of discourse.

  5. I also periodically go thru my facebook list and remove people. in fact, I currently have over 1,000 friends on my list. I think its time for another purge.

  7. I do like that you can be complex and multi-faceted.

    Would you be interested in writing a guest post for my blog? It’s always nice to have a male opinion…?
